Fortunately, there are a lot of incredibly beautiful yachts in the world up to 24 meters. Much more than among superyachts. And this list is also constantly updated. So if you’ve built an amazingly beautiful production boat, please let us know so we can add it for voting.
As with other Nautical Expert awards, the final selection of winners was made by the entire magazine editorial team from pre-selected boats through an open vote on social media. There are no first or last places here, all winning boats are added randomly.
We immediately fell in love with this boat at first sight. Besides the incredible color combination, this semi-custom electric yacht is well proportioned and very pleasing to the eye. You can read more about this yacht here.
We think this is one of the best boats on the market that can be used as a family cruiser. She is comfortable, fast, seaworthy and has friendly interiors. However, this yacht is here because it is also a very beautiful model from Greenline. We like the Coupe version better, but the Fly version looks great too.
J Craft 42 Torpedo
These are completely unique classic boats from the Swedish shipyard that instantly convey a sense of understated luxury and timeless style. The quality of these boats is so high that it is not just tangible, it is in the air around them. Naturally, all of the above are the main components of incredible beauty, the possession of which is very exclusive.
Sasga Menorquín 55 HT
All Sasga boats are very attractive, but the absolute majority of votes were given to this model. There is probably no need to explain why Sasga is on the list of the most beautiful yachts under 24 meters.
Yes, it’s a catamaran. And yes, we don’t really like multihulls. However, we made an exception for Archipelago because… Well, this catamaran is very cool. That’s why we even wrote an article about him. It compares favorably with all other motor catamarans not only with its beautiful design and color combination, but also with its aluminum hull.
Saxdor 400 GTC
These unusual Scandinavian motorboats are very attractive and look like small pocket trawlers. However, of course, these boats are planing and therefore they are quite fast.
Apreamare Gozzo 45
The most charming boats are always heirs to old traditions. The Apreamare shipyard demonstrates this perfectly by building its models, which clearly trace the history coming from the classic Italian fishing boats.
The perfect tender from Proton Yachting that would not exist without Trimm Design. There is also a model in light brown, but it was this model in blue that won. It seems difficult to come up with something more elegant.
These are unique Dutch-built sports cruisers. All three models of the line differ only in size, maintaining the general philosophy of the shipyard. From our point of view, Zeelander yachts are simply synonymous with luxury.
Mulder Favorite 1700
Of course, the Favorite 1500 series from this famous shipyard should also be here. Honestly, absolutely any yacht ever built by the shipyard can be added to this list. In addition to their incredible beauty, these yachts are class A. Of course, there is no doubt about their seaworthiness, since Vripack worked on the naval architecture.
Linssen Grand Sturdy 500 Sedan Variodeck
Of all the Linssen models, voting participants, including our editors, unanimously chose this boat, which has been in production since the middle of the last century. Of course, everyone understands the advantages of the flybridge, but beauty and elegance won out.
Nimbus 465 Coupe
A fast and comfortable planing mini-trawler with a flybridge that does not require a huge maintenance budget is what most yachtsmen with a long history of owning different boats are looking for. Moreover, given that this boat was built in Sweden, there can be no questions about its seaworthiness. However, the Nimbus 465 Coupe is on this list for a different reason. This is simply a very beautiful boat with a flybridge that does not spoil its exterior at all.
Another Scandinavian shipyard whose two boats received the same number of votes. The second model was Marex 330 Scandinavia. Once again we see that the Norwegians not only know how to build boats, but also get excellent results in terms of design.
An excellent example of a modern classic, using the latest construction technologies and the most advanced onboard equipment.
Beneteau Grand Trawler 62
Despite the fact that the design of this yacht is a little chaotic, it turns out that a huge number of people really like it. The point of view of our editorial team coincides, and we believe that this is the best boat from the Beneteau collection at the moment.
Absolute Navetta 58
Navetta yachts are in the same class as the Beneteau Grand Trawler. It is not surprising that some buyers even confuse them. And like the Beneteau line, we think there are a few things that can be improved on the design of all Navetta boats. However, this does not stop them from being one of the best and most attractive boats on the market.
Previously, Wallywhy 100 was included in the list of the ugliest boats in the world, but with Wallypower 58 the situation is the other way around and thanks to its futuristic design, it makes it to the list of the most beautiful powerboats.
As Riva states, this boat is the crown jewel of their shipyard. But she is also the crown jewel of our list of the most beautiful yachts in the world.
All Wajer yachts are amazing and almost all models received the same number of votes with a slight advantage towards open boats. So we just added a photo at random. Apparently, this is the 55th model. However, you should know that Wajer hardtop yachts are just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than these luxurious open tenders.
